Why are they protesting?

Cardboard box protest on student debt – 10 Apr 2008 – NZ Herald: New Zealand National news

I’m struggling with this one. Why exactly are students protesting about student debt?

Surely the great and benevolent state couldn’t have been wrong when they bought the election in 2005 largely off of the back of a huge bribe to students. Many, including WOBH, said that debt would spiral upwards, we were poo-poohed as being wrong and now the never happy students are marching in the streets.

Well fuck ’em, they get what they deserve.
